Well presented, tasty food with stunning attention

Wide choice on the menu. Staff were very attentive and considerate. Lovely setting. The food was extremely well presented and whilst not too generous tasted so so good.

We ordered the 'fish for two' (Steinbutt), which was brought to our table before it was cooked, filetted as we watched, and carefully divided between the two of us (so we each had one underside and one overside piece). The fish was done perfectly, not a moment too long or too little, and the side sauce was not needed, so... More

I went to Opera Restaurant since it was across the street from my hotel in Zurich and it was raining. Had a good dining experience, started out with a small mix plater of Swiss cold cuts and cheeses, followed by the fish of the day Rainbow Trout). Both were delicious, and I left feeling full. Service was quick, friendly, and... More

If you want a nice quiet dinner in relatively elegant surroundings and good quality food, near the opera house as the name suggests, this is a very convenient and good address. I loved the oven-baked fish and fresh vegetables. There wasn't much choice for starters (seasonal soup or salad) but this didn't bother us. Good choice of wines and friendly... More

Right at the beginning, I can not comment the food, we did not get so far to even get a table in a virtually empty restaurant!

Excellent food with friendly servers. It is pricy but well worth it for my last meal before I left to return home. The lamb was cooked on a cooking stone and was the best that I have ever tasted. The 4 sauces were Devine! Would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
